Many preparations have to be made for the wedding reception to take place. Along with setting the location up you will have to decorate the tables. This is done with centrepieces usually. These centrepieces are normally designed to match the theme and/or colour of your wedding. There is so many ways to do centrepieces too so you have a lot of options to choose from. You can look at many home magazines that will show you a variety of centrepieces on tables. There are also decorating and bridal magazines to turn for ideas. Your flowers usually go with the rest of the flowers you are using in your wedding. Also below you will find some four tips on centrepieces: 1. Decide what type of container you are putting your flowers in first off. This will tell you how many flowers will be used for one thing. Also you will base you floral arrangement around the container. A good rule to remember is that you want your guests to be able to see over the centrepieces when they are seated, so they can see the people across from them. On other tables in the room not used for seating though you can have taller arrangements. 2. You do not need to just think of the traditional centrepieces either; you can come up with unique ideas too. Take cue from your overall wedding theme. If you are having a beach or summer wedding incorporate sand, shells and summer flowers into your centrepieces. This is just one idea for you. 3. Definitely think of the season of the year you are having the wedding in. If your wedding is near Christmas you could even incorporate Christmas lights into the centrepieces while using plenty of red and white flowers. Also add some Christmas candles to the arrangements too or some evergreen boughs. 4. The lost tip here is to go to a professional if your budget allows. He can do all your flowers for the church and reception. The pro will work with you showing you pictures until you decide exactly which look you want. This way all the flowers get delivered and set up for you, a task that can be a big one if you are trying to do it on your own. The florist is not the only one of the professionals that you can get ideas from though. Wedding planners and caterers can provide great ideas too. Many time caterers do more than just serve the food. So now that you have these four tips, you should understand better how to plan for your centrepieces. A wedding is a glorious event and the reception should be the same. You can get away with all the elaborate trappings you want for decorations on such an event. This event though, on the other hand, can be done very simple too and still be an elegant affair. All you have to do is decide how fancy you want your wedding and go from there.
